Q. Can this greenhouse be sited directly onto my garden?
A. Yes, provided you have ordered the optional aluminium base.
You must secure the greenhouse by concreting in the ground anchors.
If you are siting it on a lawn then be sure to take the top level of turf off. Cut the lawn back at least a spade width all round so that you don’t have grass growing right up to the edge of the greenhouse. You could fill this area with shingle.
Q. What about a brick surround?
A. Yes, if you prefer not to order the optional aluminium base, then the brick surround would need to be built to the exact dimensions supplied in the base plan. It is recommended that solid engineering bricks are used.
Q. What about laying slabs round the perimeter for the base to sit on?
A. As this greenhouse requires a raised plinth, a flat slab perimeter would not be suitable.
Q. Can I erect the greenhouse on a paved patio or concrete area?
A. No, this greenhouse requires a raised brick plinth. However, there is an optional aluminium base available which can then be fitted onto a paved or concrete area. Exact greenhouse base dimensions can be provided.
Q. How do I fix the greenhouse down?
A. You will need to drill through the base and fix down with screws and rawl plugs.
Q. Is drainage a problem?
A. You will need to consider how water will drain from your greenhouse. For example, if you are building a brick perimeter, you may wish to leave the middle of the greenhouse as soil to allow free drainage.
